    ok.....so i got some quinsyn synthetic compressor oil from where i work and filled up my compressor. then i read that rotary screw compressor oil isnt supposed to be used, but rather ir's all season synthetic is. anyone know the difference between rotary screw compressor oil and reciprocating compressor oil?? the stuff i got from work is $550 for a 5 gallon bucket, but if need be, i'll drain it back out and take it back.
